Playing with neuroscience:

workshops for everyone

Available on demand

an AWA Global online webinar

About this webinar:

How might we create a new normal, where the people and the cultures that we build are amazing? Where more of us can bring our whole selves to work in an environment where we truly belong?

We live in a time where more people are innovating than ever before and organisations must adapt quickly. To ensure continuous change and innovation, we need to include people of all neurotypes. We can do this by fostering cultures where everyone feels heard. Where innovative, world-changing ideas can thrive. This is crucial. Our world and our organisations must change and change fast. In order for this to happen, we need to recognise that neurodiversity is a reality and embrace it wholeheartedly.

Have you ever felt that the problem that you are facing is deeper than the team?  Want to discover better ways of uncovering what is below the surface?

So how can we, as coaches and facilitators, enable this?

Neuroscience provides us with important insights into how our brains function and respond to different activities. Different neurotypes can drive different behaviours. In order to build an inclusive culture, we need to understand and take into account everyone’s neurotype when designing meetings, workshops, and communities. ADHD is a perfect example of this. 

ADHD is an under-diagnosed condition that affects approximately 5% of the population.ADHD is an under-diagnosed condition that affects approximately 5% of the population.

Visual Facilitator Gemma Honour and Strengths Coach Myron Parks are passionate about the neuroscience of engagement and creating fun, interactive, and inclusive communication experiences. In this interactive online meetup they share how creating fully inclusive workplaces with neurodiversity in mind is a key piece of the puzzle.

Together they explore “Neurochemical Cocktails” for inclusive workshops that Gemma and Myron have created as part of the Innovation and Leadership Mastery Program. You’ll then have the opportunity to practise curating a more inclusive experience.  You’ll also learn how to employ tools that will ensure your workshops are rooted in the neuroscience of large scale facilitation, specifically with ADHD people in mind.

Outcomes

  • Describe how neurodivergence, in particular ADHD creates a creative lens for innovation and digital transformation
  • Discuss how you can leverage neurochemical states to prime everyone for collaboration & creativity (particularly focussed on ADHD)
  • Use play based techniques and visual techniques to help ALL participants (including those with ADHD)
  • Come away with a workshop of your own design that you can use for your teams
